How To Land Your Dream Legal Job – Solicitor/Legal Executive/Paralegal

How To Land Your Dream Job As A Solicitor, Legal Executive, Paralegal Or Legal Adviser…

Until 2003 I was a solicitor in full time practice. I started my legal career as a trainee legal executive. From year two I ran a full client case load at the same time as undergoing first distance learning to qualify as a Legal Executive before then moving on to qualify as a solicitor, undergoing two years part time study at Guildford College Of Law.

My first job as a trainee legal executive I obtained not through a recruitment company, but by handwriting 63 letters (yes, I remember the number very well). From those 63 letters I received one interview and was offered the job. After accepting the offer I received further offers for interview, but I had accepted the first offer by then.

In my legal career of 14 years I applied to four more law firms (once I had qualified as a solicitor) and I received four offers of employment.

In each occasion I did not use a recruitment company.

I was offered partnership by one of my firms but left with a view to setting up my law firm marketing consultancy, which I did in 2003.

I know what it takes to land your dream legal job – I obtained mine several times and since then I have helped several friends in the legal world obtain their dream job.

I have even helped friends land non-legal dream jobs.

Can I help you too?

Further Learnings For Landing Dream Legal Jobs From Working With Law Firms

Since 2003 I have worked with hundreds of law firm owners to grow their businesses. I used to think that was all that I had to do being a law firm marketing consultant. However, I have learned over the years that nothing gets in the way of growing a law firm more than not being able to find the right legal team, so I have spent a lot of time working with my clients to help them grow and retain their teams too.

I know the frustrations law firm owners feel when trying to recruit new team members.

This knowledge, coupled with my own experience of applying for and landing my own dream legal jobs, plus my understanding of what law firm owners are looking for I believe puts me in a completely unique position to help you to land your dream legal job too.

    Case Study

    Beating the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget

    We focus on accident claims, and it’s vital for us to have a strong web presence, which we didn’t have before Nick got involved.

    As a result we had to buy in leads from other sources, reducing our profit margins and making us reliant on other companies to generate revenue.

    We did have a company working on our Adwords and website, but the truth of the matter is that they weren’t getting the results we needed them to get – we only had a handful of clients coming in from those efforts, making us highly reliant on buying in the leads from elsewhere.

    And then I came across one of Nick’s books, was impressed by what I read and got in touch with him.

    The rest – as they say – is history.

    We started working together with a clear brief: Nick’s job was to help us bring in more self-generated work, so we could stop relying on buying leads.

    He started by working on our website, making it more accessible and easier to navigate.

    Next he overhauled our Google Adwords, which the previous company had been running fairly unsuccessfully.

    Adwords is hugely challenging in our sector, with some very big players bidding on some of the most common keywords, making it very difficult for any smaller firms to get a look in, and I’ve got to be honest and say that I didn’t know how Nick was going to make it work.

    But he did, by analysing very closely what people were looking for and tailoring our Adwords efforts towards them.

    It worked! We were competing with the big boys whilst spending a fraction of their budget, and the amount of work we got in was tremendous – we jumped from just a handful of leads and clients a month to 500 leads and 150 clients, every single month, all from our online efforts.

    Nick didn’t just work on the lead generation side of things either – he helped us with the client conversion process too, training our team, making our sales calls better and improving our onboarding process to avoid drop-offs due to ‘cooling off’.

    Now we don’t buy in any work at all, our pay-per-click efforts do a sterling job, and the large client database that Nick has helped us build has allowed us to increase the amount of work we do by a factor of ten, in just three years.

    I’m one extremely satisfied client, and despite the dramatic differences Nick has been able to make in the time we’ve been working together, things are still improving thanks to his guidance and support.
